    [EN] OVH adds container with 10,000 servers in Montreal

    The container was designed in Poland and brought to Canada by ship. The company says the container was less expensive to develop than the first two towers and more energy efficient.

    OVH is adding capacity to its data center just outside of Montreal using a container with 10,000 servers. The European hosting giant opened the facility last year to serve North American customers. It now touts 50,000 hosting customers in the region and is adding 10,000 additional servers to meet the demand.

    OVH first announced its intentions to enter North America in 2012 and launched the Quebec facility (its second in the region) last January with capacity for 360,000 servers. The OVH team built two hosting towers of 10,000 servers each within six months of opening. The third operational phase brings another 10,000 servers.

    The container of 10,000 servers used for the most recent expansion was designed in Poland and brought to Canada by ship. The company says the container was less expensive to develop than the first two towers and more energy efficient.

    It will be directly powered through existing electrical structures for one of the towers and run on lower voltage (415 volts instead of 480 volts). According to OVH, this enables it to leave transformers and modulators out of the design.

    The company raised $181 million to build data centers in North America. Quebec was a logical choice for the French company given language and cultural similarities.

    It focuses on green design and has taken a unique approach, overseeing every aspect of the manufacturing process. It builds custom servers, containers and data centers shaped like giant cubes in the case of France.

    The plan is to eventually build three data centers to cover the vast territory of North America.

    OVH’s first North American data center in Beauharnois, Quebec, is housed in a former Rio Tinto Alcan alumnium plant with an airflow design reminiscent of the Yahoo Computing Coop, designed to allow waste heat to rise and exit through a central ceiling vent. The building is located alongside a dam that will provide 120 megawatts of hydropower to support the facility.

    50 mil clientes com 20 mil servidores? Quantos ex-clientes e quantos aguardando aprovação da documentação?

    Aliás, alguma dúvida que a "demora" para aprovar Kimsufi é falta de crédito para comprar os equipamentos? Ou aquela "paradinha geral" nas vendas tempos atrás?

    A estorinha desse container polonês deve ser a mesma dos outros expedientes da OVH: beneficio fiscal e dinheiro barato da Comunidade Européia disfarçado de pesquisa tecnológica. A mesma lorota do dc de lata de Strasbourg. Coitados dos europeus, que pagam essa bagaceira toda.

    Como dizem em SP, estou "pegando bode" da OVH.

    Eu acho que esse delay na ativação é para criar expectativas e também pessoal reduzido para cortar o máximo de custos possível. No lowendtalk o pessoal está reportando que os atom de 4.99 estão vindo com hd 2tb e porta GB para download.

    Sem contar que, na OVH, não estou conseguindo comprar IPv4. Paga-se, normal, mas estão sem "estoque'.

    Não esquece que eles vendem VPS também :-)
